Francine Campone

February 29th, 2020

Francine Campone was born in Brooklyn, New York in the 1950s and lived in New York City until 1992. Her grandparents—a seamstress and a tailor—taught her how to sew, and her mother taught her how to knit. She used these early lessons in the intended utilitarian ways until, a few years ago, she encountered Debbie New’s Unexpected Knitting. That introduction, followed by Knitting Art, by Karen Searle and Experimental Textiles, by Kim Thittichai, opened her eyes to new possibilities for stitch. Campone is on a self-directed journey of learning in this new arena, through workshops, studying the... Read More

February 27th, 2020

Just like your car or your bike, your snow gear could use a little bit of a tune up from time to time.

Secrets of the Universe

February 26th, 2020

There’s a deep vein of eroticism that ties together Marc Acito’s new play that’s running at the Aurora Fox Arts Center. None of the characters actually have sex during the (inter)course of the play, but if you define “eroticism” as “the energy of creativity and connection,” then all of the characters are neck-deep in it. The story told on stage is the true-but-little-known episode of 1930’s American history where Albert Einstein (yes, *the* Einstein) hosts famed vocalist Marian Anderson in his home because hotels were unwilling to offer lodging to African-Americans. Supporting the... Read More

The Feel Bad Movie of The Year

February 23rd, 2020

Not long ago on my birthday, I decided to do something for myself. To celebrate my inevitable march toward old age and the grave, a drive in the mountains was just the thing. I fired up the trusty Prius, put my iPhone music on shuffle,* and off I went into the majesty of Colorado’s iconic Front Range. I stopped at Flagstaff Lookout Point. The road to the top was closed due to snow, and I figured a little stroll would do me good. After a few minutes of picking my way through the recently fallen snow, I became acutely aware of two things. First, as far as I could tell, I was the only one up there.... Read More
